The most visible scar in the conventional abdominoplasty procedure or TRAM flap donor site closure is the scar around the reinserted umbilicus. In an attempt to increase the aesthetic outcome, the authors have introduced a new technique of umbilical reconstruction and reinsertion during abdominoplasty avoiding any paraumbilical scar, which results in a more natural appearance in that area. This new technique, potential pitfalls, and long-term results are reported.
